The great Space Disagreement of 5406 has forced your entire colony to flee into the dark depths of outer space. You’re not alone. Other colonies too seek refuge from the war. All scramble to harvest the valuable resources on undiscovered planets. Your mission: destroy all other colonies. Diplomacy is boring. Shoot first, confirm if they were enemies later...
Mothership is a miniature space fleet game where 2 - 6 players take turns moving ships, attacking other players and managing an economy.
It simplifies regular war-gaming to be easier to learn, quicker to play but still keeping depth and strategy.
The main feature is a control panel which is used to alter the stats of each player's most versatile ship, the Mothership.
